Therapy is a unique relationship between a therapist (i.e., a mental health professional) – and a client where you can expect to be listened to, understood, supported, and at times challenged to grow in ways that are congruent with your ideals and values.
By exploring your life history and lived experience, greater self-understanding and insight can develop which can lead to changes in behaviors, thoughts, and feelings and positive improvements in life. This awareness in tandem with new approaches (tools, skills sets, behaviors) applied in your life – something we will work on – often lead to progress in therapy.
My aim is to assist you on your journey of healing and growth by sourcing and blending psychological theory (see modalities below), my training, and my own life experiences.
I’m informed by a handful of disciplines/theories which are listed below. For clarity, I’ve listed how I am trained or familiar with each modality.
Humanistic therapy Master of Arts, Seattle University
Existential-Phenomenological therapy Master of Arts, Seattle University
Mindfulness Personal experiences with mindfulness and meditation
Psychoanalytic/psychodynamic psychotherapy Personal therapy
Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) Teaching university level courses with ACT as a foundation.
Focusing Master of Arts, Seattle University
Cognitive Behavioral therapy Personal therapy
My approach is integrative with these theories. I prioritize the connection between therapist and client. This collaboration is a primary factor for progress in therapy.
The frequency of therapy sessions depends on a variety of factors. This is something we can discuss and collaborate on. It’s rare that meaningful therapeutic work can be done on a bi-weekly basis, especially in the beginning. It is most common to meet once per week.
I have availability Sunday through Friday.
I’m a licensed therapist (mental health counselor) in Washington State.
Currently, I practice via telehealth utilizing a secure, HIPAA compliant platform.
Healing and growth are possible, and therapy is an important step in that direction. Therapy is an investment in yourself and your relationships.
Looking for a therapist can feel like a daunting task. If you’d like to schedule a free 15-20 minute consultation via phone or video call, I encourage you to contact me and we can find a time in the next few days to talk.
